Recommendation

For making the flower use white and yellow coloured cotton thread that is fine, recommended is 2ply doily thread. The flowers hook up with very little yarn, idle for stash yarn projects.

Blocking the Octagon Daisy Motif 

For the 3ply yarn, skip the blocking. For good finishing, simple steam ironing can help straighten the motif. If you wish to block the motif, in a blow add some water, to it add half a spoon of starch, deep the motif and gently squeeze the extra water without damaging the motif, sin dry.
